: We Were the Champions

Tonight Jeremy James takes the second of three critical looks at the British way of sport - revealing some disturbing similarities in three different fields. 2: Athletics
It was not so long ago that Britain expected to win scores of medals at the Olympic Games but, at next year's games in Moscow, the question is not how many medals will we win but will we win any? Athletes throughout the world may be amateur-at least technically - but in some other countries the preparation of winners is now a profession. The East Germans, in particular, are leaving us increasingly further behind in facilities, resources, science, medicine and long-term national plans. TESSA SANDERSON, SEBASTIAN COE and DALEY THOMPSON are three of only a handful of British athletes who might win medals in Moscow -and if they do, as they, their coaches and administrators admit tonight, it will be in spite of rather than because of any help they have been given through the British system.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
